Prescott Child Support Lawyer

When parents are either unmarried or going through a divorce, a family law court may assign an order for the support and care of any minor child. This may require either parent to provide regular financial support, based on the needs of the child and the parent’s ability. Schedule a consultation with a Prescott child support lawyer today for more information.

Determining Child Support Payments

Arizona has put in place guidelines for determining child support. This amount is a calculated percentage of a parent’s income, based on the number of children they have.

Almost all earned income will be considered in these calculations. This includes:

  • Hourly or salaried wages from working
  • Any commissions, tips, or bonuses
  • Investments
  • Income from self-employment
  • Workers’ compensation, disability, or other social service benefits
  • Retirement benefits
  • Alimony
  • Interest payments

Guidelines are also generally based on typical circumstances but there can be exceptions, such as proven extraordinary expenses and other adjustments. Support payments can also be terminated when the child turns 21, if they join the military, or if they get married, for example.
